A Nursing Resume Template Designed Specifically for Nurses and Other Healthcare Professionals

This nursing resume template is designed to make it easy for nurses and other healthcare professionals to bring attention to the qualifications and experiences that are most relevant and important in the nursing profession.

The Areas of Expertise section in the summary of the nursing resume template is the perfect technique for including and showcasing qualifications that are especially important. The Key Strengths section provides a really useful and flexible format for calling out the accomplishments and experiences that are likely to appeal to your prospective employer, regardless of where they appear in your background.

Page two includes a testimonial box that can be used to provide a quote that someone has written about you, speaking to your strengths and accomplishments. Try looking through past performance evaluations to find material for this section. Another good place to find an excerpt to use here is in reference letters that a past employer has written for you. Or, you could ask a past employer or coworker to write a testimonial specifically for the purpose of including it in your nursing resume template.

The graphic and color choices were also strategically chosen to communicate the image of a healthcare professional. Color psychology tells us that the color blue, for example, conveys brand traits such as trustworthiness, tranquility, dependability, and empathy. Green conveys brand traits including calmness, vitality, health, and safety. All of these are traits valued in nursing professionals.

But, like all our templates, you can easily change the color of the nursing resume template with just a couple of mouse clicks, and instructions are included when you purchase any template.

An important word about our resume templates: We offer premium resume templates that are ATS-friendly, exceptionally high quality, and unlike any other resume templates for nurses that you will find. This is because all of our templates have been custom designed by an award-winning professional resume writer with decades of experience, and each has been real-world tested and results-proven. When you use any of our templates, nobody will ever even guess you used a template. They'll just know that your resume stands out with a highly professional and eye-catching appearance and a format that showcases all your most important nursing credentials.

You may have seen cheap or free nursing resume templates on the Internet. The problem is that when you use one of these free resume templates for nursing, you will get what you pay for (in other words, very poor quality). Your resume is absolutely critical in establishing yourself as a professional nurse, and when you use a free nursing resume template, you make yourself look unprofessional. Or worse, many of these low-quality, free nursing resume templates are not compatible with applicant tracking systems (ATS), which means you may never even get your resume in front of a human reader. Imagine sending your resume to 100 job openings and not getting a single response in return!

Your career is worth more and our premium resume templates are extremely affordable, delivering value far in excess of the few dollars you will spend to own one. We DO offer an example free resume template so you can try it for yourself and see how easy it is to use. Then, once you are convinced, come back and purchase our premium nursing resume template so you can win a competitive edge and land your dream nursing job faster.

Coordinating Nursing Edge biography, references, and cover letter templates are available to purchase separately. See the full collection:

Frequently Asked Questions

We can cover anything you need help with in relation to professional resume writing, from A to Z. My only agenda is to meet your needs and make sure that when our meeting comes to a close, you feel you have received the greatest value possible from our time together. Many colleagues want my help and guidance on challenging projects, and I provide advice in regard to the content, design, and strategy of the resumes they are working on. Others want help preparing for client consultations or handling particularly challenging clients. Professional development with the goal of achieving professional resume writing certification is another common topic.

When you are ready to book, you will be provided with my calendar, and you will be able to select a time and day that best meets your schedule. I do my best to make myself available on a variety of days and times, including occasional weekends and some nights and early mornings, in addition to regular office hours. The booking process is all online and fully automated, to make things as easy for you as possible.

Yes, please do! Our booking form includes space to describe how you want to use your session. If you have a specific resume or other documents you want me to review with you, please email them to me as far before the appointment as possible. That will give me some time to look at them ahead of time, so I can use our scheduled time together to provide my recommendations rather than read the documents while you wait.

Each consultation is scheduled for 60 minutes. Zoom is used so that I can share my computer screen with you during the consultation. This allows me to actually demonstrate recommended resume changes to you rather than just describe them. If you request it, I will record the consultation session and make it available to you for download, so that you may rewatch it later at your convenience.

No, not in the traditional sense. If we are working on a particular document and I see an error, I will certainly point it out to you. And, when I am recommending changes, I may actually make some of them for you on the document, as a way to demonstrate. But I will not proofread or edit your work in a thorough way. If you need help with those services, I will be happy to provide referrals.

Appearances matter, even with the written word, and how a document looks can make an immediate impact on the decision to read it or toss it aside. I train and mentor many excellent resume writers who have mastered the art of crafting highly effective resume content, but who lack the basic MS Word skills to create eye-catching, ATS compatible and uniquely branded documents. Distinctive Templates are the perfect solution for easily transforming well-written content into works of art that capture attention, generate interest, and motivate the recipient to read every word.

While I primarily write resumes from scratch for each of my clients, I have also used Michelle’s templates and received great feedback. I find the templates are especially helpful to organize my thinking for those clients who have an overabundance of important information that still must fit in an ATS-friendly, 2-page format without looking cluttered or disorganized.


When I was starting out with resume writing a little over a year ago, one of the most intimidating aspects was visual design of resumes. I didn’t want to have to learn graphic design to stand out—and with these templates, I didn’t need to! I was a little hesitant at first because I thought the templates might be too rigid or generic. In actuality, they are incredibly flexible and easy to play around with. I can customize any template with my client’s favorite colors in just two clicks—which means they never look exactly the same, even if I use them for multiple clients. Using the templates means I can just do what I do best—write—and then plug the text right into the appropriate section. It saves me literal HOURS of work and hassle. One of the best parts about purchasing from Michelle is that she is extremely responsive to questions. There’s a private Facebook group where she records screen share tutorials about how to switch up certain elements in the templates, and she’s always been responsive to my emailed questions. My clients are completely thrilled with the unique, modern design of their resume, and I’m thrilled that I’m saving time and don’t have to learn graphic design!

I love Michelle’s resume templates! The designs are eye-catching and easy to use. I highly recommend these templates for anyone who finds that designing a creative, contemporary formatted resume is a challenge. They’re a huge time-saver.

I used the “Pivot” template to create a combination functional/chronological resume for my first big client. Her words when she saw the finished product: “THIS IS AMAZING!” I’m a writer, not a designer. My resumes aren’t unprofessional, but they needed a “wow” factor – and now they have it. Thank you, Michelle, for offering such affordably priced tools!
